Week 8 Preview: Next 3 games to show Penn St. playoff mettle

Of the teams contending for the four spots in the College Football Playoff, none face a more treacherous stretch than Penn State over the next three weeks.

Elbowed out of last year's playoff despite winning the Big Ten, the Nittany Lions are well positioned right now as the No. 2 team in The Associated Press poll.

For the first time since 2004, they face three straight games against ranked opponents. They host No. 19 Michigan on Saturday night and play No. 3 Ohio State and No. 18 Michigan State in back-to-back road games.
